Arizona State Referee Adminsitration Courses Offered

The Arizona State Referee Administration is offering an opportunity for entry-level certification to Grade 8 before the end of 2012.

One-time only, we will allow prospective referees to earn their Grade 8 referee certification by first attending and passing the Grade 9 class on October 20, 2012 at the Phoenix Convention Center and then attending and passing the Bridge class on December 15, 2012 at the same location.

Normally, there is a one-year time in grade restriction to upgrade, but this year, we are waiving that requirement in order to help those who are unable to devote a full weekend to attend the Grade 8 certification class.
